• The Steelers look to improve to 3-2 against the Raiders at Heinz Field.

PITTSBURGH INDIVIDUAL NOTES

RB Rashard Mendenhall
• Needs one touchdown to give him eight on the year, which would be a career high. He posted seven last year and also has seven in 2010.

this is a statement game.

we must destroy and destroy convincingly. shut down the run, and pound campbell like we did vince young and kerry collins.

get lots of sacks and a few turnovers and we will be right back on track.
